The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has declared a nationwide strike starting from Wednesday.
This comes after Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) threatened to embark on strike over hike in pump price of fuel following President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s announcement of subsidy removal.
In a statement by JUSUN’s General Secretary, M.J. Akwashiki, all branches and chapters of the union were directed to begin nationwide mobilisation and withdrawal of service from Wednesday.
“This followed a decision of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) at her meeting on 2nd June, 2023 over the increase in the pump price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) by the Federal Government through the NNPCL,” he said.
“All zonal vice presidents are to coordinate their zones by ensuring that branch and chapters chairmen mobilise their members for a total compliance.”
